DurhamThe three-day practice match between India and County Select XI began on Tuesday. Washington Sundar and Avesh Khan of India were also playing for County Select XI. However, fast bowler Avesh Khan has injured his left thumb. He was taken to the hospital for a scan. The BCCI medical team is monitoring Avesh Khan’s condition.
The BCCI said in its statement, ‘Pace bowler Avesh Khan has suffered a left thumb injury on the first day of the practice match. He has been taken to the hospital for a scan. The BCCI medical team is keeping a watch on him. Let us inform that India won the toss against County Select XI and decided to bat first. Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane were not fully fit, after which they decided not to play the practice matches. Rohit Sharma took over the command of the team.
Ravichandran Ashwin, Mohammed Shami and Ishant Sharma have also been rested for the practice match. In their place, Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur and Akshar Patel have been given a chance. Let us tell you that India did not have a good start in the practice match. Captain Rohit Sharma (9) was out trying to get a pull shot. Then James clean bowled Mayank Agarwal on the inswing. By the end of the first day’s play, India had scored 306 runs in 90 overs for the loss of 9 wickets.
KL Rahul, playing in place of Rishabh Pant, who is recovering from Kovid-19, showed restraint and took advantage of the opportunity. Rahul first played a half-century inning with restraint and along with Ravindra Jadeja has carried forward the team’s innings. But after some time, Rahul increased the pace and made a brilliant century on sight. Rahul played an innings of 101 runs in 150 balls which included 11 fours and 1 six.
Simultaneously, Rahul declared his innings (Retired Out) so that other batsmen could get a chance (this is a relaxation in practice matches). On the other hand, Ravindra Jadeja also increased the pace after the retirement of Rahul, giving balance to his innings. Jadeja further strengthened India’s score by scoring a brilliant half-century. Jadeja was dismissed after playing a brilliant innings of 75 runs in 146 balls.
